It’s not just the kids that get in trouble when there’s a hazing incident. This one happened in West Virginia and cost two varsity soccer coaches their jobs. No details yet on what the soccer players did, but there will be a disciplinary hearing soon.
More from the Wheeling News Register:
Two Brooke High School boys soccer coaches have resigned voluntarily after reports of hazing by members of the team surfaced last week. Brooke County Schools Superintendent Kathy Kidder-Wilkerson said head coach Brian Cerullo and assistant coach Joe Palcic informed her Friday of their decision to step down. She said she could not discuss the nature of the incident, but noted it did not occur in the coaches’ presence.
Kidder-Wilkerson said Cerullo’s and Palcic’s resignations as coaches will not affect their employment as teachers, and she does not expect them to face disciplinary action. “These two coaches do a really good job for us, and they are just heartsick that this occurred,” she said. Neither Cerrulo nor Palcic could be reached Monday for comment.
